Automatic Contest Setting Setup

KickoffLabs automatically sets contest settings based on the campaign that you chose. For example, the scoring is set to referrals + actions which is excellent for boosting your Facebook follower count with little effort on your part. You simply design and launch the giveaway (with the help of KickoffLabs) and send out your launch hype announcements. As your first participants respond and enter they will be incentivized to spread the word about your contest to their network of friends and followers to earn additional entries + a change at winning the giveaway.

Take the difficult decision of choosing a winner off your plate by letting KickoffLabs choose the winner for you with our Pick a Winner feature!
